Wow, now I have no drivers for any IDE devices!!
Step one, no problem, only MS IDE drivers.
Step 2, didn't work, same thing, only now CDRW shows as CD-ROM, and DVDRW shows as CD-Rom in My Computer. Device Manager shows both drives by their name.
Step 3, now it won't install any IDE drivers for anything after uninstalling all them and rebooting. When it boots, I have to click thru 8 or 10 driver install failures instead of only 1!!
How do I get the IDE drivers to install? They installed fine when installing Vista Home Premium in the first place!
This is an Asus A8N5X MB. I fell back to having only ONE SATA HD attached, the Windows Vista boot drive, and it still wouldn't install drivers. I updated the BIOS to the latest after all this with Vista, that didn't help either. Device Manager shows 3 IDE Controllers, 3 ATA Channel 0, 3 ATA Channel 1 devices, driver provider UNKNOWN on all of 'em.
I see the disk drives, all of 'em, in Device Manager, but they show UNKNOWN for driver there, too, they DO seem to work. Both RW drives show as CDROM, driver unknown.
